Francisca Mayela is 43 years old and lives with her family in the wonderful province of Limón which is known for it cultural diversity with a predominantly black population and with important characteristics of Costa Rican indigenous culture, the Afro-Caribbean, white and Chinese, each group bringing to the area its own style.

This province has beautiful white sandy places, beaches and palm trees and lush national parks that protect tropical rainforest and coral reefs, and hundreds of flora and fauna species in danger of extinction.

The Tortuguero National Park contains the largest specimen of protected rainforest and here you can travel on its canals and rivers, observing the flora and fauna, appreciate the nesting of sea turtles and have the opportunity to observe more than 300 species of birds within which can be found the great green macaw, the great currasow, and the toucans. In this area important scientific investigations take place and have become a special topic of scientific and ecological tourism.

A few months ago Francisca Mayela asked that she be given some sort of support in payment of tuition for her daughter, to give her the possibility of studying and to have a good foundation for the future.

This is why Francisca Mayela is asking for a loan in the amount of 600,000 CRC so that her daughter can have the opportunity to excel and continue with her elementary school education in order to continue with this cycle and to become a successful professional.

Francisca Mayela is a member of the Empresa de Crédito Comunal de Batán, one of the 150 partner organizations of EDESA in Costa Rica. And they are happy because the results have been very good and the organization has helped many women to work in their different businesses.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

As a small and relatively young MFI located in Costa Rica, EDESA has difficulty attracting other sources of capital. Many other microfinance funders do not work in Costa Rica, because overall the country is too rich. However, organizations such as EDESA work with extremely marginalized populations in Costa Rica that really need the access to capital that EDESA provides. By funding EDESA, Kiva lenders are allowing the organization to grow and reach more people than they otherwise would be able to reach.
